Foundation for TRIMRS
The founding members of TRIMRS believe that the opportunity exists to create a model for successful collaboration in rural areas of Nebraska and throughout the United States. This model addresses the challenges unique to rural communities; challenges that are different, but just as difficult as those faced in urban areas. We will use the strength of this collaboration to gain a voice in the planning and resource allocation process, thereby creating better opportunities and more flexibility in developing solutions to meet our region's need.
Entities within the central Nebraska area that provide leadership and direction for TRIMRS include hospitals, public health departments, emergency management, city government representatives and not-for-profit agencies. A complete list of members can be found under "TRIMRS Members".
